You could use the BufferingForwardingAppender to capture the messages then send aggregate information when its time to flush the buffer.

Subject: Throttling/Rollup feature in EventLogAppender
Is there a Throttling feature available or planned in EventLogAppender.
If we log to event log a message that could potentially be logged at frequency of one per incoming request to my web application, it could flood the event log with millions of messages if/when things go wrong. If there was a = way to roll them up every x seconds into a single event log message (with a count of how many messages where rolledup), it would be useful to me.
Is there any such feature? Or workaround?
